Anzac Biscuits

Recipe by joanna_giselle

These are traditional Australian oat biscuits and until I found this recipe and made them recently, I had forgotten just how delicious they were.

This is my favorite Anzac recipe, which is also very close to the Australian Women's Weekly one. The only difference is using 1/2 cup coconut instead of a full cup. Also you put butter, golden syrup and the water in small saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until butter is melted and THEN stir in soda. The mixture goes all foamy. Then put into dry ingredients. Sometimes I have to leave it at this stage to tend to the family, but it bakes up well the next day or whenever I have time to bake them off!! Amazing the things you try when you have crying kids..haha.Thanks for posting Perfect cook!
